Saturday Workout of the Day

This started of real bad for the first part, as I was kind of out it, and I just got off the phone with mentor coach, Michael Fitzgerald, about programming and reading over notes. After the talk on the phone, my mind was on programming, and how I could make my gym better, so going into the snatches I was just off from the get go. I was going for a heavy snatch, and I was missing al over the place at 215 lbs, which in turn would be a heavy weight for me, but in the past would be very doable, so it was frustrating. I got mad, went upstairs, regrouped for about 30 minutes, and stuck to my original plan of hitting a on the minute workout with snatches to work on explosion, technique, and speed training. After that I hit a quick 15 minute amrap, that was a good skills tester, and more of a crossfit based workout. However, I have been trying to control my breathing during my workouts, and concentrating on my heart rate….

I will be posting later a video of my new airdyne bike workout, which I will be incorporating in my own programming, to see how I am going to use within Vagabond.

Saturday, January 28th, 2012 Workout of the Day:
A. Heavy Snatch, worked up to 205 lbs, but it was ugly, messy, and was missing at 215 lbs for countless reps, I regrouped in my office and hit another workout.
B. Snatch on the Minute @ 175 lbs x 5 minutes x 1 rep
C. AMRAP 15 Minutes of:
25 Double Unders
10 Pull-Ups
1 Snatch @ 155 lbs
1 Rope Climb @ 15 feet

Rest 8 Hours

Air Dyne Bike, 30 seconds on/30 seconds off x 8 sets

Did not keep track of rounds on this, as all I cared about was getting a good workout in, and trying to erase my awful performance in my snatch in the beginning.

I just have to rethink my programming for myself, and just realize, as of right now, I am not a competitor, and just have to concentrate on my weaknesses, and worry about my business, and not get all flustered, if I do not get my workouts in. I want to be able to train 100% next year with the guidance of an OPT coach, and only way I am going to get there, is by growing my business right now, and get to where I want to be, where I feel comfortable enough to be able to concentrate on my own training. Next year I will be hiring a coach from OPT to train me, and thinking about around april time to do so, to prepare me for next year.
